These landscapes pictures are wonderful and poetic. The cars photos are really exciting. My "eggplant" stays in the countryside near Blois for the winter, and I do some work. This would have been a bit complicated to go there, replacing lacking parts, then picking her up and later bring it back to Blois and return to Paris ... But I would have done if I had been warned a week or two before the “rencart”.
That's why, to my regret, I did not come. But this is only a postponement. See you soon!

Welcome Patrice :hurrah:

Thanks for the feedback on the photos ... btw, have you been looking at the pics on Picasa (??)
I know there are way too many of them, but I can't help it :lol:
Of course the cars of the regular attendees keep coming again and again - up to the point where TR3s or E-types seem to be real
'common cars' :roll: :lol: - but there are occasions when unusual cars turn up, definitely less common, at least here in France:
here comes an Hilmann Imp, then a Sunbeam Rapier or an NG (not MG) ... or (former) Margaret Tatcher's Rover Coupe :shock:
Anyway, hope you are having fun just flicking pages :mrgreen:

Sorry about the late notice for the meeting last month... that was somewhat of improvised :?
No doubt that there will be plenty of other occasions to meeting this year, no worries 8)

Take care,
Fred

Time's flying ... last weekend was already our first noggin in Nemours for the year 2015 :shock:
After the Scimitar invasion from last month, my friends were not too surprised to discover yet another Scimitar,
since the timing was perfect ... this was the Flying Banana's first encounter with other english cousins ;)

Thanks to the sunny (yet coldish) morning, a good 38 cars turned up at the meeting as you will discover below:
lots of Triumphs, Jaguars & Daimlers as usual ... plus a bunch of Austins, MGs, Lotus, Caterham, a Morgan and a Ford
All cars were already known to the club except for the following three:
- a mint Lotus Europe - with a Lotus engine, not Renault -
- a beautiful Morgan which had just been bought on Saturday !
- the shiny Flying Banana, also a Saturday acquisition :wink:

Most cars were demonstrating their support to families & friends of Charlie Hebdo's victims - as well as the other victims
in Vincennes - ... and many a participant of the noggin where on their way to join the demonstrations in Paris (actually one
of the victims at Charlie Hebdo was from a nearby village close to Fontainebleau and was know to a few club members :cry: )

I let you discover the pics below ...

Cheers, Fred

Oh, no worries Viv ... I cannot compete against you :lol: :lol:
I think 2 Scimitars - plus the Cat' & Tiv' - will keep me more than busy in the years to come :P

Thanks again my friends, I am glad you appreciate the way we are taking care of those English Classics :wink:
Cheers, Fred

A couple more weeks have passed, and last Sunday was our annual general assembly ... yet another occasion to gather around a good size table - 60 people - and to start preparing the new season :D
I have been busy presenting a document that a friend and I had prepared for the occasion ... a simple spreadsheet showing the list of members & cars - with photos to link faces to vehicles of course :wink: - At least now I can put a name & cars on each of the ~ 100 people involved in the club :mrgreen:

Sorry ... no pics today, since I happen to have reached my board attachement quota :oops:
I think it's about time that I open a Flickr or Picasa account and that I replace attached pics by just URLs :lol:

Cheers,
Fred
